That must have been a trip that usually goes onto a bucket list. I am sooooooooo jealous.

Place looks fantastic! Strange that there is no sea surf in sight, unless the main reef is far off shore.
Not many have the Madagascan hognose on their species list. Thanks for sharing Wes.

Froot, the side of the island we are on is sheltered from the open ocean by a larger Island, Nosy Be, so the bit of water you see is a stretch separating the two islands so it was almost always calm.

On the other side of the island the ocean is much more choppy with waves lapping at the coast.

Thanx for all the responses guys.
